भावितं तीव्रवेगेन यद्वस्तु निश्चयात्मना
पुमांस्तद्धि भवेच्छीघ्रं ज्ञेयं भ्रमरकीटवत्॥

A person who meditates upon a thing with great assiduity and firm conviction, becomes that very thing. This may be understood from the illustration of the wasp and the worm. [According to folk wisdom, when a wasp catches an insect and takes it back to its hole, the insect becomes so terrorised that it constantly thinks about its predator to the point where it actually transforms itself into a wasp. The same analogy applies to a person who meditates on Reality with all his mind and eventually ends up becoming Reality.]

जलान्तश्चन्द्रचपलं जीवनं खलु देहिनाम् |
तथाविधिमिति त्वाशाश्वत्कल्याणमाचरेत् ||

Life of a man is like a shaky reflection of moon in the water (is very short, and unstable). Knowing this, humans should always keep on doing a long lasting work that benefits the society.

कौपीन पंचकम्
Five Stanzas on the wearer of loin-cloth

वेदान्तवाक्येषु सदा रमन्तो
भिक्षान्नमात्रेण च तुष्टिमन्तः ।
विशोकमन्तःकरणे चरन्तः
कौपीनवन्तः खलु भाग्यवन्तः ॥ १॥
Roaming ever in the grove of Vedanta,
Ever pleased with his beggar’s morsel,
Wandering onward, his heart free from sorrow,
Blest indeed is the wearer of the loin-cloth . (1)

मूलं तरोः केवलमाश्रयन्तः
पाणिद्वयं भोक्तुममन्त्रयन्तः ।
कन्थामिव श्रीमपि कुत्सयन्तः
कौपीनवन्तः खलु भाग्यवन्तः ॥ २॥
Sitting at the foot of a tree for shelter,
Eating from his hands his meagre portion,
Spurning wealth like a patched-up garment,
Blest indeed is the wearer of the loin-cloth . (2)

स्वानन्दभावे परितुष्टिमन्तः
सुशान्तसर्वेन्द्रियवृत्तिमन्तः ।
अहर्निशं ब्रह्मसुखे रमन्तः
कौपीनवन्तः खलु भाग्यवन्तः ॥ ३॥
Satisfied fully by the Bliss within him,
Curbing wholly the cravings of his senses,
Delighting day and night in the bliss of Brahman,
Blest indeed is the wearer of the loin-cloth . (3)

देहादिभावं परिवर्तयन्तः
स्वात्मानमात्मन्यवलोकयन्तः ।
नान्तं न मध्यं न बहिः स्मरन्तः
कौपीनवन्तः खलु भाग्यवन्तः ॥ ४॥
Witnessing the changes of mind and body,
Naught but the Self within him beholding,
Heedless of outer, of inner, of middle,
Blest indeed is the wearer of the loin-cloth . (4)

ब्रह्माक्षरं पावनमुच्चरन्तो
ब्रह्माहमस्मीति विभावयन्तः ।
भिक्षाशिनो दिक्षु परिभ्रमन्तः
कौपीनवन्तः खलु भाग्यवन्तः ॥ ५॥
Chanting Brahman, the word of redemption,
Meditating only on `I am Brahman’,
Living on alms and wandering freely,
Blest indeed is the wearer of the loin-cloth . (5)
